I ran out of my holy grail KVD Tattoo Liquid Eyeliner. Instead of buying a replacement, I bought something new, Dolly Wink liquid eyeliner (in deep black).
This is my first Japanese liquid eyeliner. I also decided to try the volumizing mascara as well.
** Pls excuse the shitty picture of my eyes above. I didn’t plan on reviewing the products so I only had one selfie of me wearing the products.
Eyeliner verdict: Not too shabby. Overall, I like it. I love the cute packaging. If I can combine the packaging of DW and the quality of KVD, I’d be in eyeliner heaven.
Pros: The brush and longevity is of the same quality.
Cons: The ink isn’t as black and doesn’t dispense as smoothly as the KVD. To fix this, I just go over the initial line to increase the darkness and dispense more ink.
Mascara verdict: The formula is pretty wet.
Pros: It kept my curl and did not smudge. I’ve yet to use a Japanese mascara that does smudge though. They got the no smudge secret down (when will Western mascara a catch up?!). I also love how dark it made my lashes look.
Cons: It was hard to layer without it looking like a hot mess. It seems to separate more than volumize.
Repurchase? No. This mascara did not volumize as promised.
